Medical Weight Loss

Stop wasting time and money on diets that don’t work. For most people, fads and starvation are not the answer to permanent weight loss. Instead, try a medical weight loss program designed and supervised by a Board-Certified Bariatric Physician.

Dr. Raman’s Good-Life Bariatric Weight Loss Program with AVISTAmed’s “Keep-It-Off Guarantee”

We know that support equals success, and we won’t settle for less. We are serious about helping you win the losing battle once and for all. And to prove it, AVISTAmed and Dr. Raman are proud to announce, “Dr. Raman’s Good-Life Bariatric Weight Loss Program” with AVISTAmed’s “Keep-It-Off Guarantee.”

Lose all the weight you want in six months and keep it off. It won’t be quick or easy; The Good-Life program is an 18-month program, and it’s restoring the body to a healthier state after years of unhealthy living. There won’t be any excuses this time as everyone is accountable. This time it will be different.

Look, live, and feel better

The life-changing bariatric program is ideal for patients committed to permanent weight loss results. Typical patients have faced years or even decades of dieting, maybe facing or recovering from bariatric surgery, or have immediate or long-term medical concerns, such as high prescription cost and maintaining independence in those golden years.

Your Personal Plan

Whatever plan you and Dr. Raman agree upon, you can count on having everything you need for weight loss success. Our plans are supervised within a safe, effective, bariatrician-directed program. Our doctors, medical staff, and program coaches guide and support patients from start to finish, so they never feel left alone during the battle. There are no surprises here, just affordable, safe weight loss in a custom weight loss program with unmatched support.

Here’s What to expect from AWLC

Plans For Women

If you are looking for a weight loss program for women that works, you’ve found it.

Most of our patients are women, and we know women want to lose weight for very different reasons that are all very important. We have a program for you, whether it’s losing weight for medical concerns, special events (weddings, reunions, vacations), or just wanting to look and feel better. Want to get into a pair of “skinny” jeans or start dating again? We have you covered. Whatever the reason our women patients come in our doors, they have decided and are ready to lose that weight once and for all in a safe and reputable environment.

Attention Ladies

Dr. Raman and her team are here to help educate and support you for better overall health. For us, it’s not just about helping you meet your weight loss goals; it’s as much about helping you restore your health to its best condition. We have the resources to help you achieve better overall health, including specific weight loss diets for you as a woman. After evaluating your needs, we will start moving towards a healthier you! In addition, we know you have a busy schedule and are more than happy to accommodate you.

Post-Partum Plans

At AVISTA Weight Loss Center, we understand that time is limited for new mothers. Our goal is to help you drop that baby weight through our weight loss programs for women. We provide unique exercise programs and meal plans that help you reach your goals. New mothers can begin a customized weight loss program as soon as six weeks after giving birth.

Plans For Men

If you are looking for a weight management program for men, you’ve found it.

We have wonderful, highly successful programs tailored just for men. Dr. Raman understands that most men desire to lose weight in their midsection. Recent studies have shown that abdominal fat links to a higher death rate, especially in men. Therefore, our weight loss programs for men help you tone your abdominal area and lose both subcutaneous and intra-abdominal fat. We know that overweight men sometimes have low testosterone levels – that’s why we perform a total testosterone test on every man in our practice.

Dr. Raman and her team are aware of the unique obstacles and difficulties men face when it comes to losing weight, and our plan faces these challenges with a wide variety of foods, custom meal plans, and exercises.

When you meet with our provider, they will carve out a meal plan to help you lose your weight at a safe and efficient pace. When you get close to your goal weight, we will modify your custom meal plan into a meal plan for life to keep you at your goal weight. Daily meal plan emails and daily exercise plan emails will give you the gentle reminders and direction you need to achieve your goal.
